Supplies:

K hook
Any kind of yarn you prefer
yarn needle
I made this for my daughter who is 6 1/2 years old. Her foot is about 13 1/2 shoe size, and 7 inches long. This slipper should fit a child from the ages of 5- 8 years old. Just when you get to the length of the slipper, measure your child’s foot. My daughters foot measured 7 inches, so I made the slipper about 7.5 to 8 inches long to fit and before I slip stitched it closed, I put it on her foot to check if it fit.

Once your slipper reaches the length to fit your child, then take the ends of the last round, and slip stitch across to close it for the heel. Then at the end, I turn it inside out, so the heel seem won’t show. Now fasten off and weave in the ends.

    Thanks so much! I have watched other video tutorials for this stitch but you are the one who succeeded in getting me to understand it. I made one bootie just to learn this stitch and am so thrilled. Now I can make an adult pair for a friend with cancer then, of course, a pair for me! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  2. amray2007 February 20, 2014 at 6:31 am #

    Great, thanks

  3. shan February 21, 2014 at 7:27 pm #

    All I can say is thank you!! I’ve been looking for a good way to make these for awhile now, and I don’t know why I didn’t come back to your page to find it! I use your basic hat pattern for every hat I make just about, so I should’ve checked here first. Thank YOU!!!

  4. amray2007 February 21, 2014 at 7:41 pm #

    Great, thank you!

  5. Simone February 22, 2014 at 4:33 am #

    What weight of yarn was used in the baby slippers?

  6. amray2007 February 22, 2014 at 5:37 am #

    Sparkle White Red heart yarn, in the picture, I used Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable Yarn, Found at Walmart.

  7. Teri February 23, 2014 at 5:36 am #

    On the adult directions in the beginning you go from round one 7 st to 10 st but you don’t state weather to put in like a chain 1 or 2 to start new round. mines pulling just wondering if it’s supposed to do that.

    Thank you so much for the patterns they are so easy to follow. I am more of a knitter, easier to read the patterns. But on these they have been great.

  8. amray2007 February 23, 2014 at 6:26 pm #

    I didnt use a chain 1 or chain 2, but if you want to, then thats fine.

  9. Beverly T. February 24, 2014 at 6:14 pm #

    I love this crocodile pattern and I’m getting ready to make a pair in infant size for a great niece due in April. My question is….do you also have a different version? I have seen so many and there is another version of the foot that I like also, it seems to be crocheted in straight rows instead of rounds like this one. I can’t find the pattern.
    Thanks for your help.

  10. amray2007 February 24, 2014 at 6:43 pm #

    no I don’t, sorry.

  11. shan March 12, 2014 at 10:08 pm #

    2 more quick questions-
    1- can you use 2 strands of medium “4” weight yarn together for the adult size?
    2- why the switch to the L hook for the adult crocodile stitch part?

  12. amray2007 March 13, 2014 at 3:55 am #

    yes Im sure that yarn would be fine, I think you can use the same hook size, I changed it.

  13. Kelcey March 23, 2014 at 11:03 pm #

    I wanted to make sure that if i wanted i would be able to sell my completed booties. I would not be selling your pattern, just the booties

  14. amray2007 March 23, 2014 at 11:09 pm #

    Yes that’s fine.

  15. Dorothy Atkinson April 12, 2014 at 6:26 pm #

    First of all thank you for your excellent tutorial. I finally got it right. Yours is the first video that I understand. I am thrilled with my first bootie. I was just going to keep it as a sampler but it is so pretty I am going to make the second one.

    In your written instructions I think there is a typeO?
    “Toe: Chain 2, work 6sc in the 2nd chain from the hook.”
    Shouldn’t it read 6hdc in the 2nd chain from hook?
    No one else has mentioned it which makes me wonder if I am missing something.
    Your video says 6hdc so I went with that. Some people don’t watch the videos because they learn better with the written word. Is it possible to correct this?
    Thank you Dorothy Atkinson. dj_atkinson@sympatico.ca

  16. Dorothy Atkinson April 12, 2014 at 6:33 pm #

    Sorry I forgot to mention the error was in the newborn and other baby sizes.

  17. amray2007 April 12, 2014 at 7:06 pm #

    ok thanks, fixed

  18. Dorothy Atkinson April 15, 2014 at 2:03 am #

    I guess I’m being picky but plse fx end of toe line to read 6hdc and Round one end of line from 12 sc to 12 hdc. Thank you could be confusing to some.

  19. Christine July 6, 2014 at 5:26 am #

    You are an incredible teacher. Your video’s are crystal clear and your verbal instructions are so clear and easy to understand. Thank you so much for this video as well as all the others i have followed.
    Christine…:)

  29. Stepfanie W October 23, 2014 at 3:29 pm #

    Hi. I am absolutely new to crocheting, but I want to learn how to make these booties for myself. When you said it takes one skein of yarn for the adult booties, does a skein mean a huge ball of yarn or the smaller size? Thanks :)

  30. amray2007 October 24, 2014 at 6:28 pm #

    well when you buy a skein of yarn, it usually means the whole thing of yarn. but it can really vary. Im not that good at posting how much yarn I use.
